Our container business has grown exponentially from 200,000 Twenty-foot Equivalent Unit (“TEUs”) in 1996 to 9.9 million TEUs in 2016. Our market share of container business represents 76% in Port Klang, 17% in Straits of Malacca and 9% in South East Asia as at 2016. Our success is attributable to our strategic location, deepest channel and wharf, straight line berth, higher productivity, dedicated young and vibrant employees and connectivity to more than 350 ports around the world, amongst others.

The bulk cargo comprises mixed steel, steel coils, project cargo, animal feed, human consumables, fertilisers, building-related cargo, palm oil, petroleum, chemical and liquefied petroleum gas. It represents 57% market share of conventional cargo handled in Port Klang.

Dear Shareholders,

On behalf of the Board of Directors, it is with great pleasure that I present to you the Annual Report of Westports Holdings Berhad (“Westports” or “the Group”) for the financial year ended 31 December 2016.


westports holdings berhad pg 1 6

ch a i r m a n ’ s s tat e m e n t

In 2016, Westports accomplished another milestone by achieving 9.9 million TEUs in container throughput, despite challenges in the world’s economy and shake-ups in the container shipping industry. This solidifies our position as the leading port terminal in Malaysia.

MACROECONOMIC REVIEW The global economic growth continued to be lacklustre last year mainly due to the slowdown in China’s economy and low commodity prices. The world’s economy grew by approximately 2.3% in 2016 compared to 2.7% in 2015. The developed countries registering a growth of 1.6% and emerging markets grew by 3.4%. The US economy slowed down as a result of lower exports arising from stronger dollar which outweighed higher domestic consumption. The Eurozone suffered sluggish growth due to political risks brought about by Brexit. Japan’s economy barely grew despite the government’s fiscal stimulus. China’s economy continued growing at a slower pace, as the country transitioned from an export-oriented economy to a more sustainable, consumption-driven economy. The slowdown in China’s economy reverberated across ASEAN, as many countries count China as their largest trade partner. Back home, our economy also registered a slower growth of 4.2% in 2016 against

5.0% in 2015. As a trading nation, we were affected by global slowdown in demand for goods. However, our exports were supported by the weaker ringgit against the world’s major currencies. The shipping industry still faces excess supply in the market arising from capacity expansion in recent years and slower global economy growth than anticipated. As a result, many shipping lines recorded losses and are in consolidation phase through mergers and acquisition; and formation of new shipping alliances to remain afloat.

PERFORMANCE REVIEW As a major transhipment hub, Westports is connected to ports worldwide by main line operators, with transhipment volume comprising 74% of the total container throughput. Despite the challenging global economy in 2016, Westports managed to chart an exceptional growth rate of 10% in container throughput to 9.9 million TEUs. Transhipment grew by 11% in 2016, while gateway container throughput grew by 4%. Westports also handled 11.8 million tonnes of

conventional cargo, an improvement of 16% compared with the previous year, with liquid bulk throughput increasing by 36% due to the contribution from bunker operations. On the RORO segment, we recorded a volume of 141 thousand vehicles, down by 13%. Mirroring the increase in volume, Westports’ operational revenue surged by 14% to RM1.804 billion. Our profit before tax increased by 16% to RM755 million, reflecting higher container throughput, the effects of the increase of container tariff in November 2015, lower fuel cost and gain from disposal of investment in quoted shares. Profit after tax increased by 26% to RM637 million. The detailed analysis of performance is reported in the Management Discussion and Analysis section of this report on page 30 to 55.

SUSTAINABILITY REPORT Commencing this year, Bursa Malaysia requires public listed companies with market capitalisation of more than RM2.0 billion to disclose a Sustainability Report in the Annual Report. Thus, together with this report, you will find a separate document on Sustainability Report. We already operate our business in a sustainable manner and our long-term thinking and strategic value creation complement the current emphasis on sustainability. Our phenomenal growth over the past years is testament to our sustainable operating practices that promote sustainable growth. The Sustainability Report is categorised into three main chapters: economic, environment and social. Under the economic segment, we conduct our business in a transparent manner, emphasising integrity and good governance, and virtually all our employees are local. We also consider environmental conservation when planning and conducting our current and possibly future activities. Our social conduct encompasses close engagement with the community, especially on Pulau Indah where we are located. Employees are provided with an environment that is conducive for working and both customers and suppliers are treated fairly and with respect.

DIVIDEND

2015: RM14.0 Bil.

The dividend paid was in

accordance with our dividend policy of 75% of Profit After Tax.

AWARDS I am delighted to report that during the year, we are the proud recipient of various prestigious accolades in recognition of our contributions towards betterment of the industry, community and business. We are humbled to be awarded the Industry Excellence Award – Logistic by the Malaysian Chapter of the ASEAN Business Advisory Council at the ASEAN Business Awards Malaysia in May 2016. This award was to recognise outstanding businesses that have created a positive impact on the growth of the Malaysian economy and helped elevate the country’s image in ASEAN. Our outstanding commitment towards the numerous corporate social responsibility initiatives have also been acknowledged by receiving the Company of the Year Award for the Logistics and Ports Industry in the CSR Malaysia Awards in June 2016. The award recognises the efforts done by Malaysian corporations in contributing positive changes to the livelihood of their surrounding communities. As a testament to be one of the highly sought after employers in Malaysia, we were recognised as the winner of the Gold Award Employer of Choice 2016. It was awarded by Malaysian Institute of Human Resource Management in October 2016.

During the financial year under review, Westports operational revenue improved by 14% to RM1.804 billion with profitafter-tax improving by 26% to RM637 million.

OUR PERFORMANCE Westports has always placed utmost priority on our productivity levels whilst delivering best-in-class services to our customers. In 2016, this relentless focus and the combination of a stronger US Dollar have made Westports even more competitive for liners in making us their preferred port of call. The combined organic growth and ad-hoc calls have boosted the annual container volume handled by Westports to another all-time high of 9.9 million TEUs, registering a 10% growth as compared to the previous year. At the

end of 2016, we have cumulatively handled about 85 million TEUs since the inception of our container operations in 1996. The non-container or conventional segment also achieved satisfactory throughput growth of 16% in 2016 to 11.8 million metric tonnes. The improvement in volume is attributed to the break bulk and liquid bulk cargo segments.

WIDELY connected to more than

350 ports around the world

During the financial year under review, Westports operational revenue improved by 14% to RM1.804 billion with profitafter-tax improving by 26% to RM637 million. The Group has a net gearing of only 0.35 times even after rewarding shareholders with a 75% dividend payout from our profit after tax and also investing RM490 million in capital expenditure.

HUMAN RESOURCE Westportians are our greatest asset and driving force behind our Group. We have a total headcount of 4,611 Westportians as at December 2016. About 4,039 are operational staff and 572 are support staff. With the exception of 3 expatriates, all our employees are locals. In 2016, we carried out teambuilding programme for Terminal Tractor Operators (“TTO”) being the single largest category of operator in container segment. The programme’s objective is to motivate and encourage high team spirit amongst TTO, inculcate good values and achieve the Group’s vision and mission.

B u sin ess O pe r atio n a l R e vi e w CONTAINER SERVICES Consolidation And Alliances In 2016, the two defining features of the continued evolution of the container shipping industry were the consolidation and formation of new major alliances. CMA CGM eventually fully acquired NOL, the Singapore-based holding company of the container shipping line APL. The acquisition reinforces CMA CGM’s position as the 3rd largest container shipping line in the world, as measured by carrying capacity. In a governmentled directive, China Shipping Container Lines (“CSCL”) has been merged, and its container operations transferred to China Ocean Shipping Company (“COSCO”) with the new entity emerging as COSCO Shipping, the latter will be China’s flagship carrier. HapagLloyd, the 6th largest container shipping line received shareholders’ approval to fully acquire and merge with United

Arab Shipping Co. (“UASC”) to become the 4th largest global liner. Not to be left behind, the three Japanese lines, Nippon Yusen Kabushiki (“NYK”) Line, Kawasaki Kisen (“K”) Line and Mitsui OSK Line (“MOL”), originating from different keiretsu a century back, also proposed to form a new joint-venture company by mid-2017 to scale up their business operations and to target for operational efficiency savings of $1 billion a year. Before the year ended, Maersk Line, the world’s biggest container shipping line, has acquired smaller rival Hamburg Süd and the acquisition would boost Maersk Line’s global market share to almost 19%. The O3 Alliance consisting of CMA CGM, UASC and China Shipping Container Lines Co. (“CSCL”) operated until the end of March 2017. There are another three global container shipping alliances; they are 2M, G6 and CKYHE.

shipping alliances, OCEAN, THE and 2M, and they contribute more than threequarter of the global container shipping carrying capacity. Container Shipping Industry The container shipping industry witnessed certain positive developments that would augur well for the remaining lines in the medium term. The orders placed for new container vessels fell to a recent record low after many years of high order placements. Nevertheless, the pipeline for delivery of container ships in 2016 was still high due to orders placed much earlier in the previous years. As a result of this, the deployment of newly built container vessels, including Ultra Large Container Vessel (“ULCV”) introduced into the long-haul AsiaEurope services, still led to an imbalance whereby the supply of container carrying capacity still outpaced the moderate demand growth for container shipments. The very competitive container freight rates contributed to Hanjin Shipping’s predicament whereby the 7th largest global line eventually became bankrupt. In the meantime, financiers and creditors extended their support to Hyundai Merchant Marine to financially restructure the Korean-based line. The deployment of more ULCV into Asia-Europe services and also the

commencement of the widened Panama Canal saw a cascading effect whereby larger vessels were subsequently deployed in most services, including the Asia-Trans Pacific as well as Asia Africa services. This resulted in an imbalance between additional carrying capacity arising from larger container vessels and moderate demand growth contributed to very competitive container freight rates. The sustained modest global GDP growth helped global container shipping lines to deliver more container boxes in 2016. However, despite carrying greater volume, improved profitability remained elusive to most liners. Fortunately, the lower bunker price has helped to ease the overall cost pressure for global container lines. Against the backdrop of carrying higher volume and registering higher revenue levels but still achieving a lacklustre amount of profitability, the top-tiered global container lines selected to attain even greater economies of scale by having mergers, acquisitions and jointventures. In their ongoing quest for ever better global-level economies of scale and vessels utilisation, container shipping lines remained as cost-conscious as ever. Lower orders in 2016 would translate to a much more modest supply of new container vessels in the coming years as the expected improved equilibrium

Westports has achieved another consecutive year of record container volume by handling 9.9 million TEUs in 2016; this is an increase of 10% over the previous year’s volume of 9.1 million TEUs. Transhipment containers were higher by 11% at 7.3 million TEUs while gateway containers grew more moderately by 4% to 2.6 million TEUs. Of the total volume of 9.9 million TEUs, transhipment containers constituted 74% of the containers handled while gateway containers made up 26% of the remaining balance. Container Throughput
